High magnetic fields are one of the most powerful tools available to scientists for the study, the modification and the control of the state of matter.
The European Magnetic Field Laboratory (EMFL) was founded in 2015 and awarded the Landmark status in March 2016 during the ESFRI Roadmap presentation in Amsterdam. EMFL provides the highest possible fields (both continuous and pulsed) for its researchers. The EMFL is dedicated to unite, coordinate and reinforce the four existing European high magnetic field laboratories – the Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory (Germany), the Laboratoires National des Champs Magnétiques Intenses in Grenoble and Toulouse (France), and the High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Nijmegen (The Netherlands) – within a single body, as one of the world’s leading infrastructures of its kind.
